Through Project-Based and STEM Learning, students will build a weather station to record and analyse the climate conditions of their local community, sharing their journey with other participating CESA schools. The project will provide increased teacher capacity and authentic learning experiences through:
- developing digital technologies skills in coding a microcontroller to record sensory data
- gaining perspectives in climate science by collecting, analysing and publishing results
- sharing collected data with other participating schools across the CESA network on an online platform, to gain a broader perspective of climate trends.
After a successful 2019 pilot program, the CESA Weather Station Challenge has been designed as either an upper primary school or middle school project, using either Micro:Bit or Arduino technology. Schools can tailor the Challenge’s format to meet their schools needs and timelines.
This project will receive in-school support from a CESA Learning Technologies consultant.
